"Style of this album is a Poem core. Based on the impact of the Japanese sub-culture (anime, music, comedy, game, radio) it was created in a room of small dark home. It is said to emerge from the magnificent strain of day-to-day trivial matters. In this album, abstract language has been used in addition to the Japanese. Even a man speaking in Japanese when listening will not understand half. I believe that there is value in that kind of chaos." - BOOL Topics: Experimental, Electronic, Poem Core, Spoken Word, Ambient, Abstract, Creative Commons, Black Square
"And in the end, the beaches are left spread out into solitude waiting to be praised for their beauty. The cities creep up like hateful religions filled with nothing; but still pulchritudinous enough to entice just about anyone. The streets lie covered in cigarette butts. The pavements are stitched together with one predicament after another. A million homeless dreams holding each other’s hands and never letting go. “WALK ON US TO GIVE US PURPOSE” The million bombs and dreams that we...

"These tracks are about stasis. "Living Grass on I-70" started as a short percussion solo. I slowed it way down--something like 800%--until the sound became really degraded. Then I kept altering the pitch until the sonic degradations became the main voice in the track. "The Finger Can't See" is an experiment with out of phase repetition, boredom, and annoyance.

"The first four tracks on Major Monk Plus 3 are music-oriented sound collages that loosely follow an anti-rationalist simian protagonist as he pursues his life-long vendetta against a group of prim'e numbers who run a mustard factory.

Fescal’s recent wayward plunge into the dominion of dark experimental music demonstrates that not only is he a deft of beatless dark ambient drones but of melodic dark electron-organic music as well.

The aptly named “Vulgar and Kitsch” follows with the catchy babble of strong synth and keyboard samples along with heavy crackles and...
